The Most Effective Teeth Replacement
If you’re missing one or more teeth, then dental implants can provide you with a permanent way to restore your smile. A dental implant is a single, free-standing structure that is placed into your jawbone. The restoration includes one or more titanium, root-like posts that fuse with your jawbone to replace missing teeth roots, a lifelike dental crown, partial or complete denture, and connective abutments to secure the appliance to their prosthetic roots.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants may be for you. Unlike dental bridges, which rely on surrounding teeth to anchor the prosthetic, a dental implant does not require supplemental support. However, you will need a strong, healthy jawbone, and you must be free of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental health issues that could compromise the restoration.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. You will be able to eat comfortably and speak clearly again, which improves your ability to get proper nutrition and to communicate without embarrassment.
- Dental implants help prevent teeth shifting and the deterioration of your jawbone, problems that often occur when a tooth and its root are lost.
- Because implants are strong and fused to your natural bone, you can avoid messy adhesives and complicated cleaning procedures that other dental appliances often require.
- You can preserve surrounding teeth for a greater amount of time. Because dental implants do not require support from surrounding teeth, we will not have to modify your healthy tooth structure as we would to support a conventional dental bridge.
